Eikenella corrodens arthritis of the knee after a toothpick injury: Report of one case


, : Eikenella corrodens arthritis of the knee after a toothpick injury: Report of one case. Acta Paediatrica Taiwanica 46(5): 318-320

This is a case of an 11-year-old boy who developed septic arthritis of the right knee after a stabbing injury by a toothpick. Arthroscopic debridement of the distal femur and arthrotomy with synovectomy were performed at two hospitals. Cultures from both yielded Eikenella corrodens, an organism that may be normally found in oral secretions. The boy was given treatment with intravenous ceftriaxone after surgery and discharged home without complications.
